There are more than 2,000 varieties of edible mushrooms. They come in many shapes, sizes and textures. Mushrooms are low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, which makes them a great addition to your plate. Check out nine common edible mushrooms.
White button are the most common mushrooms to appear on grocery store shelves. They have a mild taste and can be used in just about anything from salads to sauces.
Chanterelles are funnel- or trumpet-shaped mushrooms with a fruity, apricot-like aroma and mild, peppery taste. Most are yellow or orange.
Crimini look similar to the white button, but are a little darker in color and have an earthier, stronger taste. They're actually a young portobello and sometimes called "baby bellas."
Enoki mushrooms are often used in Asian cuisine (particularly soups). They are long-stemmed and white, often packaged in clusters, and have a delicate flavor.
Morels have a distinctive honeycomb-like shape and vary in color from light yellow to dark brown. They are earthy in flavor and should be cooked before eating.
Oyster mushrooms are smooth, trumpet-shaped and have a light flavor. Try sautéing them and adding to your recipes.
Porcini are reddish brown and have a nutty flavor. Try them in a classic Italian risotto.
Portobellos are large, firm and have a meaty taste. They make great "burgers" when grilled.
Like portobellos, shiitakes have a meatier taste and are better cooked than raw. Trim the stem before cooking and try them in a stir-fry.Learn more about mushrooms »
